Vanishing Snow Means FitTrails Coming Soon!

What’s that?

Is that the sound of melting snow?

We are excited to have our FitTrail system incorporated into the re-imagined Franklin Pond area of Franklin Borough. The Borough has installed the first station as a kickoff to the soon-to-be 10 station system!

This system will offer simple access for all who visit the pond. Franklin Borough’s Senior Center is located at the pond as well and a great opportunity for the seniors coming to the center to find wellness in their walks around the pond! This past summer, there has been a huge uptick in participation at the Franklin Pond and with the addition of the FitTrail we hope to see even more residents and non-residents finding fitness through the many opportunities at the pond.

We are happy to see the momentum moving forward with the up and coming installation of the Fit Trail system.
